Meet Daniel Golladay, aeronautical engineering technology major

Daniel Golladay, Whitestown, Ind.

Major: Aeronautical Engineering Technology

My major

I love this stuff. I love working with my hands and being elbow deep in solvent, cleaning parts. It was what I was meant to do. The easiest explanation is I work on them and pilots fly them. I plan on being an airplane mechanic; I keep them running. They work you up the chain from your first year to getting an Airframe and Powerplant certification.

Aviation students represent Purdue at EAA AirVenture

At the end of July, 14 students and I traveled to the annual EAA Oshkosh AirVenture exposition and air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The weeklong international event is considered to be one of the premier gathering spots for aviators, aerospace companies, and industry enthusiasts from around the world, where over 200,000 people and thousands of aircraft typically visit each year.
